I guess that some people have just ripped the ISO from he c't DVD,
with different file sizes, which means that the MD5 alo differs. It does
not necessarily mean that any file contained has been changed.

Try to verify the content by the KNOPPIX/md5sums file contained in each
iso. It's not signed, though.

The official torrent torrent.unix-ag.uni-kl.de is provided by Unix-AG of
the University of Kaiserslautern, I have left the LinuxTag association
